Sponge-bob BK commercial

I saw on a show this morning that parents are offended by the new Burger King "square butts" commercial because it sexualizes women. I personally like this commercial more than I've liked Sponge-bob. I'm just wondering how everyone else feels about it?

  • I think it's kinda funny. My fiance thinks it's annoying and kinda vulgar LOL. And we're both Spongebob fans.

  • People will choose to be offended at anything. It was a dumb commercial and just like just about every other commercial it sexualizes not only men but women.

  • It's funny but it seems wrong for a kid's meal. I mean kids and booty shaking?

  • And there was the whole "ripped my pants" episode, which was so popular they based a doll on it...

  • At first when I was watching it I thought it was a Spongebob commerical then I was wondering why the burger King was there, once I figured out it was for a kids meal I thought it was kinda odd that they made a commerical for a kids meal (dont the little toys in the meal only last like 2 weeks?) but I wasnt offended by it. Just thought it was stupid.

  • I think it is hilarious! It is more geared towards adults but with the square booties I don't find it inappropriate for kids. It is not meant to be sexual, just silly and funny, like Sponge Bob!!
